with the new jersey governor chris christie. the two leaders literally offering shoulders to cry on and words of inspiration and support. >> we'll help you get it all together, all right? i promise. i promise. you're going to be okay. everybody is safe, right? that's the most important thing. we're going to get this whole thing done. >> i can't thank the president enough for his personal concern and compassion for our state and for the people of our state. >> well, governor romney is on his second official day back on the trail post-sandy. chivalry is dead. at his campaign stop in roanoke, virginia, just last hour, romney was in full attack mode. >> do you want for more years like the last four years? i mean, do you want four more years where 23 million americans are struggling to have a good job? do you want four more years where earnings are going down every year? >> so this hour, we are awaiting a live update from new york city. mayor michael bloomberg on what has been a commuting nightmare in and around the country's biggest city. it's something the likes of which have not been seen since
transit. governor chris christie of new jersey announced within the last half hour that the path trains that run between new york and new jersey, he expects they will be out for seven to ten days. seven to ten days, and that is going to make it very difficult for those commuters who come from new jersey to work in manhattan. it will make it very difficult for them to get to work. mayor bloomberg mentioned some of the bridges are open anding they' ing and williamsburg bridge, the manhattan bridge and the brooklyn bridge, they are now all open to traffic, but again, you know, the mayor says, look, if you don't have a reason to go out don't go out because it is a scene of destruction here in new york city. i can tell you that as i drove down here, down the island of manhattan i was struck by all of the tree limbs that are down, the scaffolding is down. there is debris everywhere and once you get below 34th street it is dark because that is where the power is out in lower manhattan. more than a quarter million people there are without power this morning and it has yet to be restored. that m
the same sort of thing. very long lines. that's why governor christie has instituted rationing. everybody who has a license plate that end in an even number can get gas on even number days. if you have an odd numbered license plate you can get gas on odd number days. here in new york, senator schumer said he's going open up some mobile gas stations where people can get 10 gallons per person. they are hoping that will ease some of the pressure. the lights are back on in much of manhattan including lower manhattan and they can open gas stations now and start pumping again. that should help as well. governor cuomo here in new york said 8 million gallons were delivered. 28 million gallons are on the way. at its core, melissa, this is not a gas shortage, even though the rationing harkens back to jimmy carter and the gas shortage, this is not a gas shortage, this is a power shortage. if you don't have power at the pumps you can't pump the gas. if you don't have gas you can't bring the gas in from other areas because the roads are blocked. the ports have just been re-opened in new york and the r
governor chris christie, michael bloomberg coming out and endorsing the president. is this a solid position? >> any other year, this wouldn't have been considered any position that he would want to be in as an incumbent president. but, well, you have to factor in the weakness of the opposition and also the history nature of this recovery which makes it different in speed from ones before it. i think what today is not a big news story and that's good news for the president. this was sort of the last chance that some external event could really trip him up. obviously, nobody knows what could occur over the last four days. but republicans were hoping this would be some last-minute thing that voters would be taking into the voting booth with them. when it appears the numbers would be delayed because of the storm, they went and said it was a conspiracy. the numbers are out and they're not that bad relative to what they could about. this is overall good news for the president as you pointed out, major foul-ups could come from any of these places. but, jared, as susan pointed out, is this already
away, whether or not chris christie decides to run for re-election or plot a potential president campaign. i think we'll also see marco rubio make movement in that direction, more republicaning coming off the bench and wanting to make more noise. >> i want to pick up with where you left off with immigration. something the president said to the "des moines register" of the and then on the record, it peeked my interest because he said if he's re-elected immigration reform is going to be the number one priority. that's a big deal. why not run on that in places, especially places like colorado, like florida. why not talk about immigration reform on the campaign trail? >> i think it's a great point. it absolutely is a critical issue, not just to hispanics, but many others. the obama campaign will make the case they've been making that argument pretty vociferously, specifically in florida where you are right now. one thing to think about here, and this goes to the previous question about what the republican party looks like after the election is what kind of congress is president obama
